The kidney is the "filter" of the human body, which plays the function of detoxification and metabolism all the time to maintain the balance of water, electrolyte, acid and alkali in the body. Therefore, it must be protected.

However, as some people do not have enough protection for their kidneys when they are young, resulting in kidney damage and impaired renal function so as to cause kidney disease. If they do not pay attention to renal protection after the development of renal insufficiency, their condition will become worse and worse. And then kidney failure or even uremia occurs.

Here are 6 good habits. If you can persist in them, you can relieve the pressure on kidneys and help the kidney function get restored.

1. Regular checkups

Kidney disease is a hidden killer, and it does not obvious symptoms. To accurately grasp the renal indicators, it is important to review on time. Key indicators to be reviewed include blood pressure, creatinine, urea nitrogen, uric acid, proteinuriaquantification, endogenous creatinine clearance, glomerular filtration rate and other indicators reflecting changes in renal function.

For patients with stable disease lasting for more than 1 year, review should be done at least once half a year; For kidney patients who have been stable for more than 2 years or more, review should be done at least once a year; If the disease is just found and unstable, it should be checked every 1 month, except for special indicators.

For people without kidney disease, the best way to prevent it is physical examination, at least once a year. After all, having a good kidney is really good. Regular checkups are the best way to protect kidney.

2. To pay attention to factors that damage kidneys

Proteinuria and high blood pressure are two well-known factors that cause kidney damage, so most patients only attach importance to them. But in fact, some other factors, such as diabetes, high uric acid, hydronephrosis, kidney stones and UTIs can also damage the kidneys. No matter before or after the disease, attention should be paid to treatment, in case that they aggravate renal failure and cause uremia.

3. To avoid drug abuse

Most drugs need to be metabolized by the kidney, so to avoid kidney damage, you should develop a good habit of medication. Do not abuse drugs, especially those with renal toxicity.

4. To drink plenty of water

In addition to kidney patients with severe edema, dialysis and other conditions need to limit the amount of diet, other kidney patients should drink plenty of water. It can not only help to form urine so as to assist kidney detoxification, but also reduce the condition of kidney dehydration, kidney sclerosis and fibrosis.

5. To have good eating habits

In the course of kidney disease treatment, good dietary habits combined with drug treatment often have twice the result with half the effort. For example, a good low-protein diet and the treatment of proteinuria. Patients with a large amount of proteinuria usually have hypoproteinemia. To avoid severe edema and malnutrition, patients adhere to a low amount of high-quality protein diet, which can not only avoid aggravating proteinuria caused by excessive protein intake, but also improve nutrition.

Without special circumstances, it is recommended to take 1g/kg protein per day, and 5g salt per day.

6. To take part in exercises

You should develop a habit of doing exercises regularly. Proper exercises can help speed up blood circulation, promote kidney metabolism, relieve kidney hypoxia and ischemia, and promote the recovery of renal function.
